Operators of a Rochester-based photonics initiative say they are working to secure a seven-year deal with “significant” federal funding to sustain operations. The expectation has been that support from the U.S. Department of Defense would continue. But how much, and for how long, has been an open — an increasingly pressing — question. “Getting this deal done...
